Academy Award Winners Announced! What Are Your Oscar Picks, Avon?

Was there someone or a film that didn't win a category that you thought should have? Was there a film you liked that wasn't nominated? Tell us in the comments!

The 85th Annual Academy Awards closed Sunday with Jack Nicholson and First Lady Michelle Obama announcing Argo as Best Picture, followed by host Seth MacFarlane and actress/singer Kristin Chenoweth paying tribute to "the losers" of the night in song.

Weeks since the national traveling Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War exhibit left the Avon Free Public Library, Daniel Day Lewis – who has a home in Connecticut – won best Actor in a Leading Role for his part as Abraham Lincoln in the Steven Spielberg's historical fiction film, Lincoln. Meryl Streep, who also owns a house in the state, announced him as the category winner. Jennifer Lawrence won best Actress in a Leading Role for Silver Lining's Playbook.

Regardless of who the Academy chose, viewers at home may have had their own favorites for the different categories. Or maybe one of your favorite films or actors was not nominated.

Watch the video above to see who some local film enthusiasts attending the Farmington Valley Film Commission's Red Carpet Gala Sunday wanted to win Oscars.

The full list of nominees is available on oscar.go.com/nominees.
